Read in November, 2008

This heartbreaking account of the first month of The Great War was not for the faint of heart or light reader. Tuchman went into facinating (and sometimes incredibly complicated) details about the philosophies, plans, leadership and movement of the various troops. Although difficult to get into, once the war began, I was completely engrossed. I was amazed at the research and details surrounding all of the different armies and their leaders. Deffinately thought provoking and educational.
